Welcome to a list of lucid dream activities created by a group of experienced lucid dreamers who love trying new things in their dreams. This list is devided into categories. If you are new here, here are some general tips on getting started with lucid dreaming:

  1. Dream Plan. Having a plan is an important part of lucid dreaming. Use this list as inspiration for all the things you can try when you get lucid.
  2. Stabilization. When you become lucid, the dream may fade quickly. In order to have longer lucid dreams, try to observe before getting excited and jumping to try things. Engage your senses and take in everything to adjust to your dream body, look at the colors, taste your surroundings. Spinning around is also known to stabilize and changes the scene.
  3. Wimpy requests get wimpy results. Have confidence in your dream commands. Also, limiting beliefs play a huge role in lucid dream control. You are the lucid creator of your experience and your dream. There are no hard and fast rules about what you can and cannot do in a lucid dream. Overall, just have fun and treat your subconscious mind with love.

Dreams are powerful gifts that can be used to channel positive energy, do healing work, have fun and better your waking life.
